New tax laws: Your estate plan may already be out-of-date

If you have not updated your estate plan in the past few weeks or months, it may already be out of date. Many of the safeguards and tax-saving measures you put into place as a part of your estate plan may no longer be needed due to the extensive tax law changes -- the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) -- that came into effect on Jan. 1.

Why should I have a power of attorney?

Many people put off creating a will or estate plan until late in life. After all, few people who are healthy and young want to consider their own deaths. However, there's no way to predict when a sudden, debilitating medical event like a stroke could strike. Car accidents, falls and other injuries can also leave you incapacitated and unable to communicate your desires to family or medical professionals.

Do you need long-term care insurance?

The answer is that everyone should do long-term health care planning, but long-term care insurance is debatable. According to Colorado State University, 70 percent of people 65 or older will need some type of long-term care. It may be home care, adult daycare, assisted living care or nursing home care.

Estate planning allows you to rest easy

There are a lot of good reasons to do estate planning. Unfortunately, many people put it off until tomorrow. But can we ever be sure we will have a tomorrow? Life is unpredictable. That is why estate planning is one of the best things you can do for yourself if you want to rest easy and have peace of mind.

Fighting family strife with an estate plan

The Tolstoy adage "Every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" is not one you wish to have applied to your family if you can help it. If you have children who are estranged from each other or are unwilling or incapable of communicating with each other, your decisions in your estate plan may cause more grief than relief.

How much do you know about Colorado wills?

Each state has its own statutes and requirements for wills. It pays to know your state's requirements, or you can utilize the expertise of a Colorado estate attorney when drawing up your last will and testament. An illegitimate will could end up in probate court despite your best efforts.
